I loooourrrrve 7-29-88. China>Crazy>Rider>Playin, Space>Gimme some>Believe it or not, sugar mags, black muddy.

Everything in that sequence is letter perfect. Jerry's playing is perfect in Crazy Fingers, gets close to the glory of that song in 75-76. Phil is all over the place in Playin, dig that jam from 2:30 to 4:30 or so. Insane!

Belive it or not is extreely well done, a rare treat very soulfully sung, and Black Muddy River is as eternal and moving a song as ever.

Definitely get this show! There is a sweet Deal, Cassidy, and Althea in the 1st set too.

I was really impressed with that second set when DSO performed it. And equally psyched to see a good quality GD AUD on the Archive. Just downloaded it and putting it on disc as we speak. I haven't given 88 it's fair share of airtime. Tonight's agenda: backyard bbq and set 2 7.29.88.

Hi Waynecs. Are you in Portland too? DSO sounded great and Rob is a very good addition on keys.
